Circuit theory
All the field of EE have one thing in common which
is called as Electric Circuits.
It is a foundation of learning.
This course is a special case of electromagnetic
theory.
EMT is an advance course which require tedious
mathematical calculations and solid background in
physics.
We make simplifying assumptions to make use of
circuit theory without knowing the EMT.

Circuit theory
What are the assumptions ?
1. System is physically small enough that charges
propagate instantaneously.
This is called as lumped parameter system
2. Net charge on every component is zero i.e no
component can collect a net excess of charge.
Note that some components can store charge
3. There is no magnetic coupling between the components
Magnetic coupling can occur within a component

Circuit theory
What are the benefits ?
1. Simple solutions at sufficient accuracy.
2. Terminal behavior of each component can predict the
behavior of interconnection.
3. We solve many linked differential equations that helps
in developing interest in other engineering applications.
4. Throughout this course we will use lumped parameters
that greatly simplify the approach towards circuit
solution.
A circuit is solved when all the unknown
parameters are known.

SI units
International system of units (SI) will be opted in this
course.
SI units are based on six defined quantities
Length Basic unit is meter and symbolized as m
Mass Basic unit is kilogram and symbolized as kg
Time Basic unit is second and symbolized as s
Electric current Basic unit is ampere and symbolized as A
Thermodynamic temperature Basic unit is kelvin and
symbolized as K
Luminous intensity Basic unit is candela and symbolized as
cd
Several other units are derived from these basic units.

What is linear ?
A linear element satisfies the properties of
Superposition
Suppose if the excitation is i1 and response is v1. If the element
is given i2 the response is v2. Moreover, i1+i2=v1+v2. This is
called principle of superposition.
Homogeneity
Multiplying the input results in multiplying the output by the
same constant. Doubling the size of the input doubles the size
of the output.

Circuit Analysis :
It is mathematical solution to find the behavior of
circuit model and ideal circuit elements.
Circuit model is mathematical model of real electrical
systems.
Elements of electrical components are easy to analyze if
considered ideal provided the degree of accuracy is
acceptable.
The ideal circuit elements can be connected together
i.e an interconnection can be defined in terms of a
mathematical equation.
The mathematical equations are in measureable
quantities i.e voltage and current.

15
Difference between a network and circuit
Interconnection of two or more circuit elements is
called network.
If the network has at least one closed path it is an
electric circuit.
Every circuit is a network.
Not every network is a circuit.

Electric charge
Electric charge is the bottomline to explain all the
electrical phenomenon.
What is an electric charge ???
It is bipolar i.e. positive and negative. The separation of
positive and negative charge means expansion of energy.
They are in discrete quantities and integral multiples of
charge on electron.
The separation of charge (voltage) as well as motion of
charge (current) have impact on electrical effects.

Voltage and Current
Energy per unit charge created by separation is
called voltage.

Sign convention
There are two sign conventions for relating the
voltage drop and current in a circuit element
Passive sign convention : If the direction of current is in
the direction of voltage drop then use a + sign.
Negative sign convention : If the direction of current is in
the direction of voltage rise then use a sign.
+

Power and Energy
Electrical devices have limited capability to handle
power.
Power is expanding or absorbing energy w.r.t. time.
